Q: Can I record video-record a constituent meeting involving me and legislative staff at my congressional office?

1 Answer | Asked in Civil Litigation and Gov & Administrative Law for New York on
Answered on Sep 11, 2017

Just the fact that it is public doesn't mean it can be recorded (i.e. court proceedings in many instance are not allowed to be recorded).

In certain locales privacy laws have been implemented whereby you cannot record someone without their consent and that also would apply to legislators and their staff.

If you want detailed research, advising, and consultation I'm happy to assist, but there of course would be a fee involved.

Q: Can a local full-time paid fire chief serve as an elected school board official in that same jurisdiction?

1 Answer | Asked in Education Law, Election Law, Gov & Administrative Law and Municipal Law for Michigan on
Answered on Aug 30, 2017

I don't see why not. I'm unaware of any fire chief being an elected position, and so there is no conflict by holding two different elected positions. More importantly, in most cases, the school district (and its board) is a separate and distinct entity from the local government. It's really no different from any other city employee being elected to the school board. The answer would be different, of course, if a school district employee were to be elected to the school board - a clear conflict.

Q: My ex received welfare and I lived with him at the time. Social Services filed a case against me to be reimbursed.

1 Answer | Asked in Civil Litigation, Gov & Administrative Law, Public Benefits and Social Security for California on
Answered on Aug 23, 2017

You need to file a claim with the California franchise tax board to receive your money back. Gather your evidence together to show that you were not receiving public aid at the time and that any income you had was your own, and that is what you were using to support yourself. If you were married at the time, however, California community property law provides that any debt incurred during the marriage is jointly owned by both husband and wife. So if your husband sought and received welfare...

Q: My brother has aggressive angiosarcoma cancer, could the cause be from working at a rubber plant?

1 Answer | Asked in Personal Injury and Gov & Administrative Law for Texas on
Answered on Aug 8, 2017

Yes. Especially angiosarcoma of the liver. Contact a firm that handles occupational disease claims. On the "no medical insurance " he should apply for social security disability--they have a fast track for people with cancer diagnoses; should apply for medical assistance. If the property is in his name VA can't take it for mom's treatment.

All the best to him.
